Kotohikihama Beach

“Kotohikihama Beach”, which is famous as a beach with singing sand, is a scenic spot with white sand and pine trees which goes on for 1.8 kilometers. This location is also designated by the nation as a Natural Monument and Scenic Beauty. Kotohiki is a beautiful beach which creates a squeaking noise with each step, due to the friction of the quartz contained in the sand. Because this sound is only produced if the beach is clean, the locals work together to keep the shore clean. If you visit this beautiful spot, please take care to take your trash home, and refrain from smoking to maintain the environment.
